Perpignan Airport serves the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the South of France, and is particularly suitable for tourists visiting the charming and often overlooked town of Perpignan. Perpignan is in the neighbouring region to the Cote d’Azur, and whilst the Riviera might often be colonised by expensive hotels and flash restaurants, Perpignan has retained its sense of authenticity. Around 30km from the Spanish border and set at the base of the Pyrenees, Perpignan is the ideal base from which to explore both Catalonia and Languedoc-Roussillon, making car hire at Perpignan Airport very popular. Hiring a car at Perpignan Airport means you can exploit the fact that you’re only 30km from the Spanish border, as well as seeing all the countryside Abbeys and Chateaus the area’s famous for.
